I love the hanging tag @ the top & how it swings back and forth when opening the blog page. Way cool. Congrats on the new blog…and good luck with all your success.

A photo session for “me”

on mother’s day i had the best gift ever … a family photoshoot of “my family!” would you believe that as many family sessions as i have taken of others … i had none of my own. i cannot tell you how happy i was to finally set a date to have us photographed.

I had been admiring bobbi + mike (husband and wife team from indianapolis) for some time. i think anyone that’s a photographer knows them but my dayton clients may not … so check them out …. they are AMAZING!  i was so excited they came here to dayton to photograph us!!! YAY for us 🙂

i’m posting a few but go see for yourself here because bobbi has funny & sweet comments along with the images.

We did not spend too much time on the beach but enjoyed a great cup of coffee before we headed out to the airport. melanie … hope the rain stayed away today! i love all the comments 🙂

I cannot wait to see the pictures! I know they will be AMAZING!


i know i’ve said it before … i just love photographing seniors! christine is no exception. she herself is an aspiring photographer … maybe that is why she was so great in front of the camera. her mom suzie came along and both were so much fun after we had to re-schedule a few times due to weather. i think it was worth it. we had a fabulous day!

Happy Mother’s Day

Today I woke up to a beautiful day with a delicious breakfast and my boys showering me with hugs & kisses.  Being a mother has been one the most wonderful blessings in my life and I am so grateful!  Thank you to my little guys and my hubs JP for making today so special 🙂
